Yummy! I read the other reviews about it being a bit wet and cut back on the honey, lime juice and mayo with great results. We enjoyed this for a nice lunch. Thanks westtextazzy for sharing. Made for Football Week 4 2013. Congrats again on another win!

I think the liquid-y consistency of this tuna may be due to the fact that what used to be 6 ounce cans are now 5 ounces. That being said, I did use a little less mayo, honey and lime juice than called for and it was much less liquid-y. I only had cut up lettuce and I added some cut up pear tomatoes. I subbed cut up green olives for the celery b/c my DH thinks celery is too crunchy! We liked this a lot! Thanks!

I have to agree with the other reviewers that this tuna salad was just a bit too drippy for comfort, and my kids did have a couple of accidents while eating it. On the plus side, it is extremely tasty and a good use of contest ingredients. Good luck, chef.
